Flying Yacht

The brainchild of French designer Yelken Octuri who also designs cabins for Airbus, this ‘Flying Yacht’ concept combines his knowledge of aircraft design with love for seas to create this outlandish concept yacht. We have seen many seaplane concepts so far, but this one surpasses them all as greatest does the least. Flying Yacht idea doesn’t seem as weird or far-fetched, as many engineers and designers have already approached him to turn it into reality.

When on the water, each of the four mobile masts reaches a height of 40-meters and can be individually oriented through a double-jack system, which ensure optimal positioning regardless of wind direction. Sails are stored in compartments located inside the each mast that are further lowered down to work as horizontal wings. This amazing 46-feet long trimaran sailing yacht converts from super yacht to glamorous jet plane with the help of four mobile masts.
